Majesco Announces Video Game Adaptation of Taxi Driver Film


2006 Release to Coincide with
30th Anniversary of Popular Film

EDISON, N.J., May 11, 2005 –
Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the historic motion picture, Majesco
Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of digital
entertainment content and products, today announced the development of Taxi
Driver™, a video game based on the classic Martin Scorsese-directed film from
Columbia Pictures. Through a licensing agreement with Sony Pictures Consumer
Products (SPCP), Taxi Driver is currently being developed by Papaya Studio and
is scheduled to ship in Spring 2006.

“Nominated for four Academy Awards®,
‘Taxi Driver’ remains one of the most iconoclastic films of our time. Compelling
and powerful, the movie ensnares viewers in the seedy urban world of New York
cabbie Travis Bickle, and we hope to do likewise with our game,” said Ken Gold,
vice president of Marketing for Majesco. “We look forward to developing a game
that remains true to the spirit and style of the movie, and embodies a total
entertainment experience.”

“We’re excited to be working with
Majesco on a game for Taxi Driver,” stated Mark Caplan, Executive Director,
Interactive, Sony Pictures Consumer Products. “We’re confident they, together
with Papaya Studio, will create a game that successfully makes the transition
from film to the video game world.”

Written by Paul Schrader and
released in 1976, “Taxi Driver” is a gritty, disturbing, film classic, featuring
some of Hollywood’s finest actors, including Robert DeNiro, Jodie Foster, Harvey
Keitel, Cybill Shepherd and Peter Boyle, in a brutally compelling portrayal of
alienation and psychoses.

Additional details and game play
features for Taxi Driver will be released at a later date. More information
